"Settle down, settle down," begged Clarendon College's principal David Wilson of his over 1,700 students yesterday morning, as they celebrated their long-anticipated victory in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/LIME daCosta Cup.

The students poured into Stuart Hall, blaring vuvuzelas and waving blue and yellow chequered flags while chanting cheers celebrating the school's comprehensive 3-0 win over last year's winners, St Elizabeth Technical High School, at the Montego Bay Sports Complex on Saturday.

Clarendon College's previous success had been in 1998, when Walters was also at the helm.

Now, Clarendon College are already looking forward to the Olivier Shield matchup, which brings together the rural and corporate area champions, on Saturday against Jamaica College.

"We will go and give a good showing against Jamaica College on Saturday. We have a very good team and we will definitely put on a show," said Wilson.

In terms of readiness, the team is ready and raring to go as they are physically fit and at their peak.

The return of the title to Clarendon College has ended a 16-year drought.

"I am very much elated and satisfied that we have accomplished what we have set out to do," said Walters.

He said he is thankful for the overwhelming support from the school, the past students, sponsors and the wider community and noted that he is looking forward to more success in Saturday's game.
